“Great Location and good hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

I had been stayed over there for a week when I was on business trip. It's really nice and well maintained hotel. More over to this, It is located at near to city center area (Radhuset T.B) so all kind of public transports and attractions are easily accessible.

They are also offering wide range of varieties and break-fast.

Yeah obviously, It seems little bit costly but recommended to stay.

The hotel is very clean with very personable and friendly staff. It is a typical downtown hotel with rooms on the small side. However the location is what makes the stay here.
One the hotel is a few yards from a Metro stop (Radhuset) and is a 5-10 minute walk to the Central station so getting around Stockholm and Sweden is rather easy. My office is a 5 minute walk from a station on the same line so for me the commute was a breeze.

Secondly, I recently stayed here for an extended business trip (24 nights) and found the area around the hotel filled with wonderful restaurants offering great choices in dining options. The breakfast buffet is plentiful and delicious.

Overall a good hotel, I have had a very good stay here, will definitely consider this for my next trip to Stockholm.

The best is the location in Kungsholmen, walking dinstance to shopping, restaurants, the sea. The normal doubleroom is ok, a bit small. Comfortable beds. Small meny for rooms service (from the restaurant in the hotel) - the food was expensive and not very tasty. Eat somewhere else, there Arne plenty of restaurants in the neighbourhood. Otherwise nice staff, ok breakfast.

The hotel has seen its glory days and is now quite torn down. Although it is going through a refurbishment, the hotel rooms (at least mine) are not up to today's standards. The lobby is very nicely renovated with a descent restaurant. Good breakfast. The amenities are not great, though. The gym is microscopically small and the pool wasn't open. There are plenty of better hotels to choose from than this one in Stockholm.

With newly renovated rooms, good beds and good restaurant this is a good choice in Stockholm. Gym, pool and spa also at hotel. Located a bit off centre, but still with other good restaurants and public transport within minutes walking. Extra points for breakfast and the bar with a large selection of beers.

Overall good hotel. 5-6min walk to Central station. Very good breakfast. Friendly professional service!
Standard European room. Quiet,clean, size a bit on the small side compared to the US. Would definately recommend to others!

I had booked a room for 3 but when I called to confirm the booking they said I would be charged for the extra bed. After explaining the situation the issue was quickly resolved and we didn't have to pay. No real hassle.

The shower drain needs some maintenence, water started collecting soon after the shower was started.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2015

I stayed for one night as part of business trip. Location is good, a 10 min walk from the central station in a nice part of central Stockholm (Kungsholmen). Fourth floor room was really small (fine for one person with no luggage) but newly renovated to a good standard. Nice lobby bar and friendly staff. Slow wifi. I would be happy to stay again and to recommend this hotel. However, Ii you are 1+ travellers with luggage I would enquire about room size beforehand.
